    Hey Kirk -

    Need more info on this (really, for anybodys-sake...) Tested? Known-working? Last-known-working? Dead? Any idea? No Idea?... I mean, more of that type of info would help 'shape' any offers, dig?

    This is a water-to-water heat exchanger. It came as part of a Sabre system and was originally matched with a head and supply. It ran about 10 hours a day, every day for about four+ months at the Ď98 world's fair. Itís been in storage ever since. We sold the head and supply years ago and I have no way of testing it, but it was running like new when it went into storage. http://www.coherent.com/products/?357/Innova-Sabre

    Was it 'bled' properly (completely-drained / blown-out, including the DI-filter disconnected?) before storage? It's a bit disconcerting to see it with no cap-plugs...
    spidey, las cucas and other-such 'burrowers' seem to love hose-ports, etc... But I guess that would be part of any offer-consideration...

    Do you still have the 'comm' cable that ran betwixt the HEx and PSU? You can, in-fact, hot-wire those to run, at least for testing-purposes...
    I can supply pin-outs, but don't have the manual w/ my notes, etc, here at the moment...

    Lemme know... thx

    Question

    I assume these have a fat TEC array in them... Correct?

    No, they are a water to water exchanger hot water from the laser recirculates, while cold water from you supply cools it down, then runs down the drain... This allows the De-Ionized water in the laser cooling loop to stay that way, and 'cheap' supply water to take away the heat.

    Laser (the acronym derived from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation) is a spectacular manifestation of this process. It is a source which emits a kind of light of unrivaled purity and intensity not found in any of the previously known sources of radiation. - Lasers & Non-Linear Optics, B.B. Laud.

    Anyone in Seattle interested? I'm getting tired of looking at it.

    Other than that, FleaBay or scrap... I'm probably one of the only PL'ers that would even-remotely have a use for one of these, and I don't since we have two, fully-working, and I am about to put an entire Sabre WL up for sale at a stupidly-low price (...for a 16W WL... So...

    If this were a water-to-air, it would prolly be gone already... Jus' sayin...

    Hope this helps...

    PS - Do you still have the 'comm' cable that ran betwixt the HEx and PSU? You can, in-fact, hot-wire those to run, at least for testing-purposes... If you do, PM me, and I can give you the pin-outs for pump, etc... If you can say "Yes, it DOES still work.." in any of your listing-efforts, that will help anyones' purchase-consideration, considerably... .02...
